Thanksgiving Eve

Yum, I just love Thanksgiving Eve. Everyone at work is in an over-the-top deliriously happy mood. EVERYONE. Plus, tonight is traditionally the rowdiest night of the entire year-- although my husband claims that it is only rowdy for townies. I am going to go ahead and completely disagree with him on this one and even though I am not going home to hang out with a bunch of people from high school or see old college friends, I am am still going out. Really, I think that is what makes this night truly the most happening - everyone is in a good mood. And why not? It's the start of the holiday season, we have a 4 day weekend ahead, I get to eat A LOT tomorrow. Let's face it, with the state of the economy, we are all in need of a little cheer and Thanksgiving arrived just in time!

In keeping with tradition, I am going to name the top things that I am thankful for (I know it's cheesy, but it must be done):

-My Husband, Chrissy
-My Family- new (Joanne/Mike/Lisa/Ben/Jack) and old (Tit/Boob/Moesha/Skipper)
-Good Careers
-My new Mt. Rushmore plate

It's on!

Today I am oozing with excitement! Not because I only have one more day of work this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday or because I am going to see the long anticipated new James Bond movie this week (anyone who knows me, knows that I am a MASSIVE Bond geek), but mainly because tonight is the reunion show for the Real Housewives of Atlanta (AKA Hotlanta)!!!!! Seriously, I had my doubts that this latest installment of the Bravo series could be as good as the Real Housewives of NYC, but the ATL blew it (and the Orange county version- which I'm not really into) out of the water. Even Anderson Cooper is watching it. Given all of the dirt that has come out after the ladies finished shooting, the reunion is sure to be JUICY and a trainwreck. If you have not seen it, read this article, it will undoubtedly make you want to catch a marathon (which is sure to be airing afterall Bravo only has like 5 shows) sometime over this long weekend.

"It's not true. Some have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that's their story. Good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you're that pissed that so many others had it good." - Melvin Udall (from As Good As It Gets)

Hello blogging world! Today is day 1 of Good Times Noodle Salad. I have decided to start this blog mainly for myself and my husband so we can look back and see what we were doing at certain times in our life-- we are both currently 28 and freshly married. We live in MPLS which can be wonderful or extremely irritating. Wonderful when you are enjoying the many lakes and clean, quaint neighborhoods. Extremely irritating when you want to buy wine and you realize it's a Sunday so you can't. Plus, there's always the old "Minnesota Nice" syndrome which is the round about way that Minnesotans are able to insult each other while still smiling. It makes me a little crazy since I'm always second guessing what people really think of me and if they are being genuinely nice or if it's a back-handed compliment. All of this aside, I can promise you that I will NEVER use this blog to talk about the miserable weather in Minnesota… that's seriously all anyone ever talks about at work (well, at least during the winter). Welcome to my site!
